What does a 4 month old fetus kick feel like? Is it like a thump coming from the inside?

I guess

A female dr who had children would be best to tell you, but my wife said that is a good description. You feel a "bump" coming from the growing baby, which may be a kick. Congratulations and best wishes.

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

Could an abdominal ultrasound at 8 weeks be off by a month (month further along)? Fetus looks like a little bean & sac is still visible.

Yes

Menses
Better at 8 weeks is to have a vaginal ultrasound as they are much more accurate for dating pregnancies this early. A vaginal ultrasound should be off by at most, +/- 5 days, no more. Definitely not a month. Ultrasound is possibly more accurate at this age than is last menstrual period. If LMP and ultrasound differ by more than 5 days, doctors will use ultrasound to date pregnancy.

Dr. Paul Neumann answered:

I am using 0.1% betamethasone for 4 months, I just know that I am pregnant in the first month, does the drug have any adverse effect on the fetus?

Probably OK

Betamethasone
it's hard to prove any medicine is 100% safe in pregnancy. If it's not essential you could stop it for 1st trimester. However, little of the topical steroid will reach the fetus and many women have used it, not realizing they were pregnant. There does not seem to be any pattern of adverse effects on the fetus.

Can anemia during pregnancy harm the fetus? I’m four months pregnant and was just diagnosed with anemia. Could this be harming my unborn child? .

Possible, unlikely.

Maternal anemia is grossly overdiagnosed during pregnancy in the U.S.; British studies have proven that the best maternal hemoglobin is 9-11 g/dL as a nadir around 28 weeks. If you are in that range you and the baby are just fine. I would get concerned if this gets below 8-9 g/dL and try oral iron supplementation. Consider electrophoresis if never done before to exclude hemoglobinopathies.

What is best position of a fetus at seventh month?

No best position

Skull
Since a fetus can change positions at will-there is no best position. It is preferable to be vertex-or head down. This is the normal position at birth.

What are the causes of less growth in 5 month fetus and what is the next step for the same???

#1 make sure

Female_health
her dates are correct, assuming they are could be due to placental insufficiency , obviously must R/O crhomosome defects and other anomilies, please have her discuss with her OBGYN, and hopefully she has already been referred to or will be referred to a perinatologist which is a high risk OB specialist who should work together with her OB

I have just been told that my 6 month old fetus has a 3mm hole in his heart, what do we do now?

Fetal ECHO.

Heart
If not done already, a fetal echocardiogram should be performed to assess the fetal heart anatomy and exclude additional and more dangerous anomalies. If the VSD is isolated, the prognosis is very good to excellent and you should not worry too much.
